What's that? I haven't written anything on this blog for the past two months? Well, it's Thursday today and I'm gonna write a TSC entry because I make the rules in here and you're gonna like it. Cool? Let's proceed!
I've been dreading Father's Day this year because it would be the first time that I won't be celebrating it with my old man. His birthday's coming up in month, too, and it's been eight months since he left. Time really does fly, doesn't it? The pain of the loss is still there (or maybe it won't really go away?), but thankfully I'm slowly learning to live normally around that grief.
Around two days shy of Father's Day, Globe released this video ad that hit me right in the ~feels~, mainly because I saw the striking similarities Papa used to do to me; sending short text messages, asking me about my whereabouts, and picking me up wherever and whenever I needed picking up. The spectacles the actor wore were even almost the exact one my father used to wear.
You know that thing you do when you wake up, you squint because your eyes adjust to the light? Well, I was trying to rouse myself up by scrolling through my Facebook feed when I chanced upon the video ad. Next thing I know, I was bawling my eyes out even before the clip ended.
Coincidentally, I dreamt about Papa the night before that. It was brief; he was smiling at me as I tried to pull him inside a nearby Pizza Hut. The dream was so vivid, I could clearly make out the crinkles around his eyes when he laughed heartily. I'd like to think this is his way of telling me that he never really left me with these kinds of dreams.
Thanks, Pa. And I love you too.
